    Alex van Tonder has used her advertising experience to create a social media thriller, with multimedia, reality TV and advertising as players in a terrifying game.Superstar blogger, Jacob Lynch, AKA Brodie Lomax, has 11 million followers and his own reality show This unlikeable protagonist is also known as Mr Misogyny and that Sex Tape Guy His life is a crazy mix of drugs, sex and being seen in all the right places.He has also just landed an eight figure book deal But what happens when the blogger has writer s block He flees to an isolated hunting lodge in Alaska to write When Alicia emerges unexpectedly from the snow, he knows he shouldn t get involved, but what would his alter ego, Brodie Lomax do The next day Jacob wakes up chained to a bed If you think the book sounds like Stephen King s Misery, it is and it isn t There are so many twists in this nightmare that you re not sure what to believe This One Time brings into shar...

    With words like Professional douchebag, assholepreneur and revenge porn Romeo used to describe our protagonist Jacob Lynch A.K.A Brodie Lomax it should not come as a surprise that our bro Brodie is all of the above and so much Picture everything that is dark, twisted and terribly terribly wrong with social media and the fame that comes along with it Now picture a young good looking drugged up misogynistic man in control of it all That my friends is Brodie Lomax.At first I had a hard time getting into the story, mostly because it s being told through Jacob Lynch s perspective and man does his perspective suck He makes a living out of exploiting women for goodness sake However, Alex managed to keep me hooked through out the book despite my building hatred towards Brodie and it also helped a lot seeing a different side to him as the book progressed Glimpses into Jacob s past, before The Age of Brodie made him human and in a way tolerable.The relevance of the different characters need for fame and success however is what initially hooked me in the beginning of the novel Let me tell you some people would do just about anything to get their 15 minutes of fame and with social media making so many people s dreams come true it was fascinating reading a book that basically attacked that part of modern society It ina...

    Notorious revenge porn blogger Jacob Lynch, better known by his pseudonym Brodie Lomax, is in the midst of throwing the internet world on its head with the renewal of his reality TV show, seven figure book deal, and of course his revenge porn blog, when he suddenly vanishes out of range of any wi fi hotspot An escape to an isolated hunting lodge in the middle of Alaska seems to be the perfect cure for his writer s block until the mysterious Alicia shows up Of course, things don t go exactly as planned, and when he wakes up chained to a bed, revenge and grief stricken Alicia seems than happy to give him quite literally a dose of his own sick medicine.Alex van Tonder s debut novel is exciting, unexpected and undeniably crazy much like her psychotic bride to be on the loose, Alicia I experienced so many conflicting thoughts and emotions that by the time I finally closed the book I had to sit back for a little while and take about five or six deep, deep breaths Jacob is simultaneously infuriating I wanted to kill him for about 95% of the novel, or at least give him a serious lecture on basic human decency and how not to destroy other people s lives and frustratingly likeable I was startled that at some points, I actually didn t want Alicia to mutilate him, and hoped he d be able to find his way back home somehow I think that exposes some really good writing the way in which van Tonder was able to completely expose...

    I struggled with this book The author is a blogger and this is her first novel ironically the story is about a blogger I was disappointed that as a South African author, she chose New York as her setting The protagonist is a chauvinistic and misogynistic man which, I felt, was not very well developed as a character He seemed to embody all of the cliches without any ...

    I found this book absorbing and its premise was lots of fun, but I think it would have packed much punch if it was only half as long The plot is just not complex or mysterious enough to keep a reader thrilled for nearly 400 pages As a result, what could be a biting, schadenfreude laden romp of a sh...

    This One Time by Alex van Tonder can be classified as a pseudo modern thriller that makes Jim Carey s The Truman Show look like kindergarten recess The story starts off excluding the prologue, obviously where Jacob Lynch aka Brodie Lomax is finally getting ahead in his career as New York s most successful blogger A beer brand is looking to collaborate with the star for his own reality TV show, where he can womanise and generally be a douche on cam, for money than he s ever dreamed off Add his signing bonus for a book he s not been able to write, and voila, he s a self made millionaire But being a misogynist as blatantly as him isn t everything he s dreamed of Alicia, one sick psycho, has a bone to pick with Brodie, and he might not be able to bullshit his way out of it this time.This One Time is written A chronologically in places, where Jacob Lynch is transported to and fro in his memories, which makes for intriguing reading What s , This One Time is very now as far as modern horror is concerned, preying on the reader s fears in regards to the social and moral prob...

    Finally finished this book It took me a while to get through it, partly because I have it in paperback format, and finding the time to actually sit down and read a book as opposed to listening to one while getting on with life has been very hard this year But also partly because the first 60% of this book has been a bit of a slog I won t lie there was a time when I really, REALLY wanted to hate this book and give it up At some point I just wanted to scream that yes, I get that Jacob is in pain, but can we please get this show on the road While the last third is fast paced and nail bitey, the first 2 thirds crawl by like a man who had his feet chopped off, bleeding reflection, inner monologue and descriptive prose as far as he goes The ending, however, than makes up for the faults of this book The pay off and then some is definitely worth the pain of the first part, and in some cases I...

    This one time I irritated my husband reading till the wee hours of the morning and sneaked off to a coffee shop after a meeting to finish a book This one time I swear I m not posting anything on any blog, twitter or Instagram ever again.

    This book was emotionally exhausting.Jacob was the most awful guy but I somehow still felt sorry for him, especially after the final reveal.
